White River girls dominate 2A league foe | Girls Basketball

Continuing their run of early-season dominance, the White River High girls defeated Clover Park Friday night in South Puget Sound League 2A basketball action.

The final score was 77-29 in a game that was decided shortly after the Hornet band finished the national anthem. White River rattled off the game’s first 10 points, quickly bumped the advantage to 24-6 before the end of the first quarter and – after the Warriors showed a bit of life with an eight-point run – added a offensive explosion that took the lead to 44-17 by halftime.

The home-court victory pushed White River to 2-0 in league play. During those contests, the Hornet girls outscored their opponents 151-45. The 4-0 squad also has a pair of nonleague wins to their credit, both by double-digit margins.

White River was paced by Amanda Lance with 20 points, Kendall Bird with 19 and Sydney Anderson who added 11.

The Hornet girls took on River Ridge Tuesday and face the Washington Patriots Friday, then take an extended holiday break. After this week’s pair of league encounters, White River is off until the Dec. 29 Cloud 9 Christmas Classic at Lynden Christian High School.
